IHG unveils debut UK locations for new luxury brands

Hotel brand IHG has announced the debut UK locations for its boutique brand Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants and its recently launched Voco Hotels brand.

The group will launch the first Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants in London, Manchester, Edinburgh and Glasgow, and the first Voco hotel will make its UK debut in Cardiff.

The move follows the announcement made in May of an agreement with holding company Covivio (formerly Foncière des Régions), to rebrand and operate 12 high-quality open hotels in the UK. Nine of the hotels have joined IHG’s brand portfolio, with the remaining three expected to join in Q3 this year.

CEO Kenneth Macpherson said: “I am delighted to be able to confirm the UK debut locations for Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants and our new upscale brand, Woco Hotels. The expansion of our global footprint in high-growth luxury and upscale segments is gaining momentum, with IHG now the leading luxury operator in the UK.”
